Washington: Facebook has announced plans to introduce a new dialer application for android users. The social networking site is currently testing this app with Android and will eventually bring it to smart phones.
According to the gizmodo.com web site, the new application will be a lot like Truecaller, judging by the screenshot.
The application will have access to your call logs and will let you block numbers that you desire and even pick out of the commonly blocked numbers from its database.
Facebook will face competition from Truecaller, as this app essentially works on the same idea.
So users probably won't be able to use the two in tandem. Hence, it might be hard for Facebook to convince users to switch over to this new dialer app.
